Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein to step down - before Trump can fire him

The New York Times reported last week that deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein had suggested secretly recording Trump to set the stage for pursuing the US Constitution's 25th Amendment, which provides for the cabinet and then Congress to force out a president who is incapable of discharging duties.

Rosenstein has been a frequent punching bag for Trump supporters for appointing Special Counsel Robert Mueller in May 2017 to take over a federal probe of suspected Russian meddling in the USA election and potential coordination between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

Trump has been reported on numerous occasion to have weighed firing Rosenstein to tighten his grip on that investigation, which the deputy attorney general has overseen since Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the matter over his own contacts with Russian Federation shortly after Trump took office. "We are looking at it", Trump told host Geraldo Rivera in an interview taped on Sunday for his new show on WTAM radio in Cleveland. "I was not involved in that process because, you know, they go out and get their own deputies and the people that work in the department". "It's very early. We just read the reports".

It would, according to Republican allies of the President, who have urged him to hold off on a purge of Justice Department officials until Brett Kavanaugh is safely in place on the high court. "And Jeff Sessions hired him".

Both articles cite memos written at the time by Andrew McCabe, then the acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director, in which he noted Rosenstein discussing the 25th Amendment and wearing a wire.
